Dog Attack Leaves Man Seriously Injured and School in Lockdown

A man sustained severe injuries, and a primary school was placed on lockdown following a dog attack on Thursday in Stonnall, Staffordshire.

Police Response to the Incident

Shortly before 3:15 pm, police were dispatched to Stonnall, Staffordshire, in response to reports of two dogs running amok. Quick-thinking members of the public managed to intervene, successfully pulling one of the dogs away from the injured man and restraining it. Simultaneously, the second dog was contained within its owner’s apartment.

School Lockdown and Injury

The attack prompted authorities to take precautionary measures, with St Peter’s Primary Academy, a nearby primary school, temporarily placed on lockdown. This decision was made to ensure the safety of the children.

The victim, a 30-year-old man, suffered significant injuries in the attack. He was promptly transported to the hospital for medical attention. Additionally, the man has been arrested on suspicion of having dogs dangerously out of control.

Police Statement

A spokesperson from Staffordshire Police provided details regarding the incident, stating, “We are investigating after a man received serious injuries after being bitten by two dogs in Stonnall. We were called just before 3.15 pm this afternoon to Main Street to reports that a man had been attacked by two dogs outside a property. The man has been taken to the hospital.”

The spokesperson further added, “A number of people helped to try and get the dogs off the man and contained one of the dogs outside. The other was contained within the owner’s flat. We prevented a number of school children leaving the local primary school, St Peter’s Primary Academy, for safety reasons. The children have since been allowed to go home.”

Previous Incident Prompts Concern

This incident follows another recent dog attack in Birmingham, where an 11-year-old girl was injured. A 60-year-old man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of possessing a dog that was dangerously out of control.

Footage of the Birmingham incident raised alarm and led Home Secretary Suella Braverman to seek “urgent advice” regarding the potential banning of American XL Bully dogs.
